Album EP - New. Release date: 02/10/20 Black Vinyl
A first-generation Mexican-American based in Oxnard, CA, Los Retros, AKA Mauri Tapia, began playing music as a child, borrowing his older brother's guitar when he was just eight years old. Aged 16, he started putting tracks online that he'd recorded with an old second- hand mixer, on which he played all the instruments himself. Thanks purely to word of mouth, he built a loyal fan base online, racking up hundreds of thousands of streams, and began performing to sold-out audiences of young people who related to his heartfelt songs.
His second EP, Everlasting, is a collection of five intimate, nostalgia-inducing songs that channel a variety of influences from soul and funk to psychedelic rock and Latin American pop. Across the EP, Los Retros reflects on a newfound sense of spirituality, love and positivity.
For fans of: Cuco, Beebadoobee, Toro Y Moi, Yellow Days and Mild High Club.
